Summary Early in the summer of 2005, Kansas City police predicted a record year for homicides. At the time, more than half of those murders were unsolved, and police blamed citizens who knew about the crimes but wouldn't come forward as a witness. This story exposes some of the reasons why people were reluctant to cooperate with police investigations -- including a vocal "Stop Snitchin'" movement.
